Do you want to study abroad without having to spend a whole semester away? In that case a summer course or a traineeship could be a good option.
To study abroad during a period of time is often very rewarding, from an academic as well as a personal perspective. However, for some students it can be difficult to be away for a whole semester. Here you find information about our short-term exchange possibilities. More information about requirements, application procedures and deadlines is detailed in each call for application.
Do you want to study abroad without having to spend a whole semester away? The CIVIS Alliance, in which Stockholm University is a participant, offers several courses for students who want to study a short term course at one or more partner universities in Europe.
Traineeships and teaching placements abroad
As a student at Stockholm University you have the chance to do a traineeship abroad as part of your course or programme. If you do a traineeship within Europe you can apply for a scholarship for your time abroad.
If you are training to become a teacher you could have the possibility to do a teaching placement (VFU) abroad. Visit your department’s website for more information.
